Project: Wind Turbine

Project Description

Myshak Crane & Rigging was requested to build 9 towers in 2 months time in southern Alberta. The challenge was the height of turbines being built and the weight of the wind turbine itself. Lots of hills and wind speeds from 0-25mph made for a tough time to assemble the crane and an even shorter timeframe to lift the turbines into place. After the first two turbines we had to move the crane 4 times to complete the remainder of lifts.

What We Did

Services included in this project were Trucking to deliver crane parts took 13 loads with boom, counterweight and all rigging.
